Fully synthetic- M1 EP All oils are good today. Can't go wrong with any of them. For extended drains though, M1/Amsoil are the two best IMO.

Quarterback sneak, following buster's lead: M1 EP/Amsoil. EP is easier to get your hands on locally, but Amsoil can be had via a phone call or online order.

If, Heaven forbid, Gold GC is not as good as green GC, it'll be M1 0w40 for me & my VW.
 
Full syn: M1 10w-30 (summer)* M1 5w-30 (winter)* Semi-syn: MC 5w-30 Dino: Havoline 5w-30 *M1 5w-30 is kinda on the thin side, otherwise I'd use it all year. And since I just switched my Grand Am over to GC yesterday, I can tell you that the thicker oil does make my engine way quieter, especially at start-up.

Castrol Syntec 5W40. I have another 2,000 miles to go on my Audi A4 (2.8L V6) and I will be sending in a sample that will have 5,000 miles on it. Terry has read out a previous GC 0W30 report and I want to compare it against the BC 5W40. I run Mobil 1 5W30 EP in my wife's RX330, but the Audi seems to enjoy the 5W40 (less oil consumption than with GC 0W30).

I've got a few ideas, including: Amsoil 0w30 Esso 0w30 Castrol 5w40 Castrol 0w40 from Europe (depending on cost) and even M1 5w30, if it is indeed now 11.3 cst

...I'll chime in since I don't even use GC because of a large supply of M1 that I have. M1 5w-30 until it's gone. Then Amsoil ASL 5w-30 or TSO 0w-30. I've got awhile to decide.

That is a good point! I definitely plan on giving the gold a chance, but only once my green stash runs out, which is about 18 months to two years away. [Smile]

Yeah, but with your Green stash it will be, like, 2050 before you would HAVE to use the Gold... [LOL!] [Razz]

Good point [Cheers!]
